O-Shot Columbus, Ohio
PRP For Sexual Wellness & A Rejuvenated Love Life
PRP for Sexual Wellness is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that helps patients gain control over their own well-being. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the power behind this therapy (commonly referred to as the “O-Shot”). Using your own blood’s natural growth factors, the treatment increases your sexual satisfaction, rejuvenates your erogenous zones, improves your ability to reach orgasm and optimizes all of your intimate experiences after just one visit!
Do You Find Yourself Thinking Any Of The Following?
- “I wish I was able to get in the mood when I want to be.”
- “I enjoy sex, but I need so much stimulation to be intimate.”
- “I wonder if my partner knows I’m enjoying myself?”
- “I’ll never feel as sensual and excited as I did before having kids.”
If the answer is yes, then PRP for Sexual Wellness may be your solution! Using the growth factors of your own blood, you can now fix your most intimate issues and get back to feeling like your more youthful, vital self.
What Is The O-Shot?
This is a minimally-invasive treatment that involves the injection of PRP (the components of your blood most beneficial for healing and restoration) into the walls of the vaginal canal and clitoris. The direct introduction of these platelets and growth factors to the tissue encourages angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) and neuroregeneration (repair and restoration of nerve endings) to re-innervate the targeted cells, allowing for natural recovery of sexual function in the forms of increased sensitivity and lubrication.
What Are The O-Shot Benefits?
This is a quick and comfortable PRP treatment with incredible benefits for your sexual wellness. Benefits of the treatment include increased sensitivity to stimulation, increased pleasure, more frequent orgasms, increased lubrication and decreased discomfort during sex. The physical benefits are dovetailed nicely by the emotional satisfaction that this treatment can bring.
Treats Mild Incontinence
Another benefit of the treatment known widely as the “O-Shot” is lessened urine leakage. It also treats mild stress-related urinary incontinence by strengthening the body’s pelvic floor, which is responsible for controlling the flow of urine. Incontinence and accidental leaking are very common (and natural) symptoms after childbirth, making mothers excellent candidates for this treatment!
Helps Improve Other Conditions
Other conditions the PRP treatment can help improve include vaginal atrophy, pelvic floor dysfunction, discomfort or pain during intercourse, internal vaginal scarring, or scarring from a perineal tear or episiotomy after childbirth. All we ask is that you make your provider aware if you suffer from any of these (or any related) conditions to discuss how PRP injections may be able to help.
Frequently Asked Questions About The O-Shot
PRP is plasma from your blood with a high concentration of platelets, the unique biological healing agents that encourage tissue growth and restoration. Platelets are activated during the body’s natural healing process; when you sustain an injury, your body sends a signal to flood the injured area with blood and platelets to repair the damage, create new cells, and make the existing cells more functional.
This same restorative principle carries over when PRP is used for other applications (such as hair restoration or vaginal rejuvenation) where the goal is to target and reinvigorate specific tissues. PRP is not only platelet-rich but also nutrient and protein-rich which enhances its regenerative properties.
The O-Shot can be used to help treat mild Stress Incontinence. It cannot treat Urgency, Functional or Overflow Incontinence.
PRP treatments like the “O-Shot” usually cost about $1,500 per treatment. We recommend repeating the treatment every 6 to 9 months to maintain best results.
A consultation is required before performing the treatment, where you will meet with our O-Shot specialist Stacie Isler, MS, PA-C. Together, you will discuss what issues you are facing and what sexual wellness therapy with PRP can do to address them. You will have all of your questions answered about how the treatment is performed and what you should expect. After your consultation, we will plan a date for your treatment to occur!
At your appointment, you will meet with Stacie to ask her any remaining questions you have and she will explain to you the steps of the procedure. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied to the area of treatment as you relax comfortably. As the numbing begins to set in, we will draw a sample of blood to create the PRP solution. About 2 tablespoons (52 ccs) of your blood will be drawn and dispensed into the PRP machine for separation.
The PRP Centrifuging Process
We will then wait for approximately 17 minutes while your blood is separating in the centrifuge of the PRP machine. The machine works by spinning the blood rapidly, dispersing the molecular components of your blood based on their precise weight — as a result, all of the beneficial platelets and growth factors from your blood sample are isolated and become the PRP concentration.
The Injection Process
Your injector will then collect the potent PRP in a syringe (which ends up being about 3 to 5 ccs after separation) and begin the procedure. Usually, 2 to 4 injections are performed in total. You may experience some pinching and cramping with each injection, but the anesthetic does a nice job of keeping this part very tolerable. The procedure only takes about 5 minutes in total.
After the PRP is injected, the platelets get to work creating new, healthy cells in the targeted tissues. There are several things you can expect after the therapy, including increased lubrication, a heightened sexual desire, and an improved ability to have (multiple) quicker, stronger orgasms. If you face mild urinary stress incontinence, you’ll notice an improvement in just a couple of days, and the onset of increased lubrication and the sexual benefits will become noticeable a few days later.
If you’re planning for your effects to peak before a certain window of time, you’ll want to schedule the injection to occur 2-4 weeks before the intended period. Results tend to last around 6 to 9 months; as soon as you notice the effects begin to fade, you may be ready for another treatment.
PRP for Sexual Wellness is incredibly safe due to the fact that it is a sterile procedure that uses your own blood — no foreign substances are introduced into the body, meaning there is virtually zero chance of the treatment being rejected! However, afterward, you will likely experience 48 hours of tenderness and swelling at the injection sites.
It is also possible you may experience some light spotting and cramping. We recommend you refrain from intercourse, tampon use, and exercise until these symptoms subside. Depending on your profession, you can usually go back to work immediately after treatment.
Anyone who wants to improve dryness, libido, sensitivity, and the physical expression of desire can stand to benefit from the O-Shot! Life stage, identity, status, sexual orientation, cultural background, or other physical characteristics don’t matter — if you are eligible to receive the treatment, you are able to enjoy its many benefits.
Ask your provider at your consultation if there are any other unique circumstances you should consider. Please make us aware if you are allergic to lidocaine and numbing medication, and make sure you have a good understanding of restrictions and downtime expectations.
Who Is Not A Candidate?
Not all patients are eligible to receive this treatment. Some blood disorders may make you ineligible for PRP therapy. People with low platelet counts generally do not make ideal candidates; you can likely still have the treatment performed, but it may require a larger blood draw. People who regularly take steroids or immunosuppressants are also generally not good candidates.
If you are not a candidate for PRP for sexual wellness, you may still be a candidate for our other sexual rejuvenation treatments!
